Making compilation CDs for songwriters since 1997.

Songsalive!, the largest internationally based non-profit organization supporting, promoting and educating songwriters and composers, has created CD Samplers since 1997 as a platform to showcase songwriters and their songs to the world. Every year, our CD Samplers have attracted songwriters from the four corners of the globe.  

*It's all about the songwriter and the song*

  • exposure of great songwriting talent and songs to the world's music markets.
  • a way for songwriters and the music industry to connect directly with no middleman.
  • a unique promotion of independent songwriters seeking placement of their songs, rather than 'artists' seeking fame.
